At what stage of my business do I need to start systemising?
The methodology that I apply is essentially the same for any size business. I use the fundamental, proven steps that take you from where you are now, to where you want to be. If you have been in business for a while, you will no doubt have experience some pain. If you are starting out, you will want to set yourself up for success from the outset. The sooner you can get systemised; the sooner life becomes easier. If you are thinking about when is the best time to start, don’t think about it just do it! There will never be a perfect time; you will never have enough time, so my suggestion is that you jump on board, let us plot the coordinates and help you to get to your destination. The key is to start.
What if I don't have any systems in place?
You most likely have some way of doing things in your business, you just haven’t thought about them in terms of systems. What you are currently doing may not be the best way, we’ll look at your workflows and see what can be improved.
If you don’t yet have a particular system in place but know you need one, we’ll work together to develop the best systems for your business. At the end of the documentation stage, you’ll get to implement and test your new and improved systems and processes.
How long does it take to systemise my business?
With our Systems Done for You service, we focus on making you and your business more organised and productive. Systemisation of a business properly takes time, but there are factors to consider such as the availability of your team and the resources that we may need to create. Our aim is to do as much of the heavy lifting for you. We make sure that you have the best-designed systems; implemented right and that you can maintain them. Systemisation is an ongoing process of continuous improvement, and you’ll have a system for that!
I just don’t have time to systemise my business; there is so much to do, right?
When will you have time? If days, weeks, months go by and nothing changes, then something needs to change. Each day of indecision is a day of missed rewards. Think about a time when you are less stressed; you get enjoyment from your day, your clients become loyal fans, your team love working for you and stuff just gets done the right way every time. It’s not a pipe dream; it’s a real possibility. For each hour you invest in systemising, you will get back many many times over. You will get more free time, and your business will ultimately be more profitable. Systemising has a phenomenal return on investment – one of the best investments you can make in business.
Of course, you will need to do some work. Firstly, you need to be motivated and have the right mindset – a systems mindset. After that, you will be emptying out what is in your head, don’t worry, we have a process. Systems Done for You is designed to do as much of the work for you that we possibly can, including the actual documentation. You will inevitably end up with a list of things to do, but nothing more than is required to get the result that you are seeking. We have a wealth of information, templates, proven processes, policies, and many other resources at our fingertips.
Once everything is in place, you and your team will become your own systems specialists continually improving, adjusting, and delegating your work. At the end of your efforts, you will have the highest quality business in your field, the happiest staff, the most satisfied clients, and the business you always wanted.
What if I am not local, don't you need to come to my office?
If you have a computer and a reliable Internet connection, we can work with you anywhere in the world (time zones permitting). We work with businesses throughout Australia and internationally, and the results have been fantastic.
We always spend time upfront learning more about you, your business, and any specific requirements you have. Our Systems Done for You service is customised so that you get the results that you want.
Whether you are 5 minutes down the road or 12 hours away by plane, you can be assured that our commitment, high level of service and the results we achieve are consistent. We have developed a tried and tested methodology that works seamlessly no matter what industry, the size of business or time zone.
What can I really expect to change once I have systems in place?
Everything! Systemisation will help you get a sense of purpose, control, and mastery in your business. If you have done most things right in your business so far, systems will take you to an entirely new place.
Imagine being in control of the new client intake process where every new customer receives the same high level of experience every time. Imagine the time you will save when a team member leaves, and you can induct and train a replacement within hours not weeks. Sure occasionally things will still go wrong, that will be your opportunity to improve those systems even further.
Do you have the right systems for growth?
When it comes to systems, do you love the freedom and control they give you or do you cringe at the thought of them? Or are you somewhere between?
